High profile implants will not improve 'torpedo' shape

+1
At 6 months it is unlikely you will see much change in your existing breast shape.  Also, a high profile shaped implant is probably not going to be helpful in changing your 'torpedo' look.  Finally, a high profile round implant is the least likely to give a teardrop shape.  High profile implants are meant to give you a bubbly round look.

Breast shape is not always based on implants.

A breast augmentation will increase breast volume, but often times does little to change the overall shape of the breasts. This is particularly true in cases of constricted breast deformities or "torpedo" appearing breasts. Many times, a mastopexy is necessary to create the natural "tear-drop" appearance.

Torpedo Shape Breasts after Breast Augmentation?

Thank you for the question.

Although difficult to give you advice without direct examination, at 6 months postop it is very likely that you are seeing  the final size/shape of your breasts after breast augmentation surgery. It is possible that the breasts will look less “torpedo” like with less projecting breast implants.

If this is a concern, consult with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.

Best wishes.

Breast shape after augmentation

Breast shape is predominantly determined by your skin envelope.  Changing from "torpedo" to more teardrop shaped breasts may require adjustment of the skin envelope via breast lift (mastopexy).

Implants and breast shape

You do not mention whether or not your implants are saline or silicone. HP saline implants tend to a rounder look compared to HP gel implants. That having been said, implants tend to make bigger versions of what you started with so without seeing good before/after pictures it is impossible to render an opinion.
